Example text

A large body of evidence is therefore now available on the basis of which it would seem possible to make a more definitive assessment of the impact of aid on development. We shall therefore first summarize the main findings of the studies in this area, and then disaggregate aid into its various components to get a better understanding of the channels by which it can be expected to have an impact on growth. Growth matters because it results in rising incomes that enable the poor to improve their standard of living, health and educational status.

They state that some confirmation of this phenomenon can be found in the in-depth governance and anti-corruption diagnostics of the World Bank, where empirical evidence of state capture and crony bias has been observed in the poor governance countries of Latin America and the former Soviet Union. The recent study by Rodrik et al. (2002) has again highlighted the central role that institutions and institutional quality play in influencing developmental outcomes. Rodrik et al. (2002) argue that, while physical capital, human capital and technological change are known to be the proximate causes of growth, it still needs to be understood why some countries have accumulated and innovated better than others.

To facilitate this process, it would be appropriate to use the elements of the new paradigm as a template to define the economic, political and legal institutions necessary to address predation, failed states, poverty, and development in general. Although local history, custom and culture can be expected to influence the exact character of the institutions that emerge, our arguments indicate that fundamental scope remains for international action to support the establishment of institutions in the third world that will enable levels of governance to be achieved that are more favourably disposed to productive activities and behaviour.
